Re: Dana 60 Question
[ QUOTE ]
As far as Gm trucks using factory dana 60s, they used them in 88-92 SRW crew cab 1 tons, and military cucv's? Im not talking about dually ones, just single wheel versions. Did they use them in other years and how common were they used?
I thought, and I could be wrong, that they werent used a whole lot.

Pretty much what chuck said. GM introduced the K30 in 77 I believe (reg cab long bed) as well as the crewcab. Anything that's a 1 ton GM up until 91 will have one, excluding the IFS trucks of course. For instance, mine came from a 1988 CC SRW, along with the 14 bolt from the same truck. Certain cucv's will have them, but not all. Those that will ususally have 4.56 gears (if not always), and a rear detroit(in the 14B). Sometimes they have a posi unit in the front 60, but it's more rare to find those.
Theres no need to narrow your seach to just SRW, if you're looking for one though. Sometimes people preffer the DRW 60's, so they can run unmodified military H1 wheels. So, it's easy to find someone willing to trade out hubs if you want. Or you can keep the DRW 60 and run the H1's yourself if you want. It's a bit pricey, but if you have to, you can buy the correct SRW hubs new.
